David Mellor cutlery is made by a small specialist team of highly skilled craftsmen, some of whom have worked for decades with David Mellor, building up an exceptional expertise in metalwork. Though our award winning Round Building factory is technologically advanced a high degree of hand finishing is employed to give the cutlery its perfectionist quality. This film shows the manufacturing process of a fork.
The company was set up by David Mellor, Royal Designer for Industry. Mellor is a key figure in British design with an international reputation as designer, manufacturer and shopkeeper. Born in Sheffield, he has always specialised in metalwork and he is particularly famous for his cutlery design.
Corin Mellor, David's son and a talented designer in his own right, succeeded his father as creative director of the company in 2002.
David Mellor cutlery is manufactured in a purpose-designed modern factory in the Peak District National Park. The Round Building, designed by Sir Michael Hopkins, has won numerous architectural awards.
